Hello Crafting Friends and Visitors, start of another week, I hope everyone had a good weekend, we had a quiet one.
Is everyone well, hope that you are but sending kind thoughts to those who are struggling a bit just now.
Well, I'm getting ready to go down and visit with my dear friend Dale tomorrow, really looking forward to it, just going myself, Alistair is staying to look after Teallach, actually he felt he couldn't face another long bus journey after our trip to Glasgow. Dale and Stewart are off to New Zealand in a couple of weeks to spend a few months with their son and family, so I felt I wanted to see her, especially also as he sister has just died and she s awfully sad as you can imagine.
Getting the house prepared, making sure there is food for both my boys has taken time. As Alistair doesn't know how to work the washing machine I've had to catch up with the washing too. I don't do meals, he is capable of cooking thank goodness. I just hope he get on OK minding Teallach, he isn't finely tuned to him as I am.
Milo too is going to have to do without me , I think Damian is going to work a bit more from home. But get this, our chewing boy has been to a doggy nursery. They have found somewhere locally that you can take your dog where he has loads of company of humans as well as other dogs. They took him along at the weekend and Milo was assessed to see if he got along well with other dogs and he was fine. Lots of space to play inside with loads of toys, activity things and a big yard outside for them to play. climb n objects and goodness knows what else. Milo loved it, got along fine with the dogs who were there and came back home whacked. I've never heard the like of it, but if it helps well and good. obviously it costs, didn't ask how much, but it must be cheaper than having to replace furniture and carpets. So I think he will be going there sometimes. Whatever next??
So for my share today I've decorated up one of the fabulous Imagination Crafts MDF Globes I bought whilst at the Glasgow show;
When I saw the globes, there are a few of them, on Hochanda a few months ago I thought I just have to get some, so I did. I wanted to make one for Damian and Moreen and this is it. I've not used all of the elements that come with this set, but I've made a wintry background scene with DI and used an IC tree stencil, Inkylicious sun/moon stencil, Creative Expressions glitter. The Deer are part of the globe and the have been painted with Starlights and Sparkle Medium, The frame of the globe has been painted with Silver Starlight and Diamond Sparkle Medium just where the deer are standing to give the impression of snow. I've made snowflakes using various makes of dies and added sequins to the sky. I also added little lights, again seeing this done by Lisa on the show. It all took a wee bit of time to make but I think it is worth it and hope that Damian and Moreen will like it, hope you do too.
I have one to make for myself, but that all depends how I get on with the Christmas knitting.
That's me done for today, I might not be able to get around to visit whilst I'm away so forgive my lack of commenting.
Thank you for all the lovely comments on my CCC cards, you are all so kind. but for now,
